Next year will mark 20 years since Avril Lavigne graced us with her iconic song “Sk8er Boi,” and now she has plans to make the song into something bigger.

In her interview on the iHeartRadio’s “She Is The Voice” podcast, Lavigne said, “recently with it being almost the 20th anniversary, a lot of people have been asking me to play this song on TV shows, so it keeps getting brought back up and people will always reference it to me.”

  • She added: “And so, I’m actually going to turn this song into a film and take it to the next level.”
  • According to Billboard, no details or casting have been announced yet, but Lavigne did reveal what inspired the track, which was co-written and produced by The Matrix trio — Scott Spock, Lauren Christy and Graham Edwards.
  • “You know what it was like in high school, you have all the different groups and cliques, and there’s like skaters, preps, jocks,” Lavigne told the podcast about what prompted this romance story between a ballet dancer and a skater boy-turned MTV star.
  • “It’s kind of like a missed opportunity at love. The skater boy is in love with the preppy girl but like she’s too cool for him but then five years from now she’s feeding the baby and she’s all alone and she wishes she would have followed her heart and not tried to live up to society’s expectations.”

Lavigne has grown a little older, a lot wiser, and is still ruling over the pop-punk genre. Her latest album “Bite Me,” released last month, marks her debut with Travis Barker’s label DTA records, per The Rolling Stone.

She also appeared in Willow Smith’s music video for “G R O W.”
